What are the pros? Flavorful when young.
What are the cons? Becomes bitter when bolting.
Grew this variety in 2018. Nice texture in salads with a little stronger flavor than some of the "bland" stuff you get from the grocery store. This lettuce is versatile in that it can be cooked for use in soups and stews without turning to complete mush. Combine several leaves to use as a wrap. Be sure to harvest leaves while young and tender. As plants start approaching the time to bolt, the flavor changes and becomes quite bitter. The growth pattern on these plants is upright. I used a spacing of 8 inches between plants and 10 inches between rows. They were planted in a layer of compost.
